dearest thomas,

having lived long enough to see the

a-bomb drop, one wonders if you had

rethought your infamous ending

to “The Hollow Men,”

for most certainly

the world will not go with a

whimper,

we would be so lucky

to be rolled up in the fetus position

down deep in a shadowy corner,

to wither away “whimpering”

a slow & silent

personal demise,

each one of us---

however,

as things look,

the a-bomb will appear a walk in the

park, compared to what we have

coming---

the only justice is that it’s exactly

what we all

deserve.
